I need a train snowblower! Heaviest snow arrives in March and my toy snowblower cannot clear the driveway piles.
That's a whole lot of NOPE!

We shake the fondu set. We shake it until we receive bacon frazzles in reverse. A bulldozer is best served chilled over warm chipboard.

I've never eaten warm chipboard. I had a rice cake once though. I have to think the flavor would be similar.

I think they've grasped the concept in Romania
Everytime I see one of these big rotary plows in action I remember the sad case of a guy who decided to spend the night in the parking lot at the Mt. Bachelor ski area near Bend, Oregon. He dug a cave into the side of the plowed bank and crawled in with his sleeping bag to snooze. During the night there was heavy snowfall and the plows came through sometime before dawn. One of the big rotary plows made a pass to redo the cut for the bank and...

At the base I was stationed at in Alaska, the rollover plows would plow the snow from the taxiway and runway into a long rick, and then the huge Oshkosh blowers would blow it into the field between the two. When they had a trainee on the blower they would often hide a couple of quarts of transmission fluid somewhere in the rick just to watch his reaction when the snow blowing out suddenly turned pink.

And that is why I cannot buy a K3! Oshkosh-Bigosh is still blowing pink juice over newbies!

A "little sadistic?" Remind me to steer clear when you're grumpy!
